Leicester Racecourse

Leicester Racecourse is a right-handed, oval-shaped British horse racing venue in the village of Oadby, south of Leicester, in the East Midlands. There are both flat and National Hunt events on this track, so it gets plenty of use throughout the year.

There are two Listed Leicester races, one for each code: the Charnwood Forest Mares’ Chase over two miles in January and the seven-furlong King Richard III Stakes in April. The undulating course is about a mile-and-three-quarters all the way around. Leicester horse racing puts an emphasis on stamina, and that includes the flat sprint track which is seven furlongs in length.

Leicester Racecourse Tips

  • Over jumps, Harry Skelton was the leading jockey in Leicester Racecourse events in the five seasons between 2015-16 and 2019-20, riding nine winners at a 36 per cent strike rate.
  • Aidan Coleman also partnered nine horses to victory in that period, but had a worse average. Adrian Heskin, meanwhile, had a 32 per cent win ratio.
  • The top National Hunt trainer was Tom George, who saddled 40 per cent (12/30) of his horses in Leicester races to victory. Philip Hobbs was the handler with the best average, however, sending out winners at this track with 47 per cent success. It certainly paid to follow these stables.
  • Flat jockeys to keep an eye on at Leicester Racecourse, based on the five years from 2016 to 2020, were Jim Crowley (24/124) and Silvestre de Sousa (23/117). Three trainers also saddled more than 20 winners in that time. They were Richard Fahey (29/157), Richard Hannon (27/171) and Mark Johnston (23/125).

Leicester Racecourse Behind Closed Doors

Leicester races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Leicester Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Leicester races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Leicester Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
